Orioles re-signed LHP Rich Rundles to a minor league contract.

Rundles allowed three runs over 13 1/3 innings at Triple-A Norfolk in 2012 after being signed out of the independent Atlantic League. The 31-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2009 and is unlikely to make it back up in 2013.

The Orioles have purchased the contract of left-hander Rich Rundles from the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League.

Rundles had a 3.02 ERA in eight starts with the Barnstormers. The 31-year-old left-hander hasn't appeared in the majors since 2009 as a member of the Indians and posted a 1.80 ERA and 29/15 K/BB ratio in 30 relief innings with the Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate last year. There's a little bit of history here, as Dan Duquette drafted Rundles in the third round of the 1999 draft when he was GM of the Red Sox. Rundles will report to Triple-A Norfolk, but he'll strictly serve as organizational depth.

Indians optioned LHP Rich Rundles to Triple-A Columbus.

Recalled on Saturday, Rundles pitched one scoreless inning on Monday before being sent back down. The left-hander figures to get another shot with the Indians at some point this season, but for now he makes way for Wednesday's starter, Zach Jackson.

Indians recalled LHP Rich Rundles from Triple-A Columbus.

He'll take the spot of Aaron Laffey in the bullpen. With a 1.80 ERA in a small sample size of eight appearances for the Indians last season, he deserved another shot with the big club. Rundles was 1-1 with a 3.21 ERA in 15 appearances with Columbus. He spent one day with the Indians last month in case of emergency, but didn't make an appearance.

Indians optioned LHP Rich Rundles to Triple-A Columbus.

Rundles was sent down to make room for OF David Dellucci. Rundles had been plenty effective for Cleveland, with a 1.80 ERA in a brief 2008 trial over 8 games. Rundles deserves another big league shot, and as a lefty reliever, odds are he'll get it.

Indians recalled LHP Rich Rundles from Triple-A Columbus.

MLB.com reports that Rundles is only expected to be with the Indians for a night, as the team is expected to call up a hitter prior to Friday's game with Travis Hafner (shoulder) hitting the DL.

Indians optioned LHP Rich Rundles to Triple-A Columbus; reassigned RHP Tomo Ohka and LHP Ryan Edell to minor league camp.

Rundles, who spent last September in the majors with Cleveland, gave up eight earned runs in four innings this spring. Ohka allowed 10 runs -- six earned -- in 3 2/3 innings.

Indians purchased the contract of LHP Rich Rundles from Triple-A Buffalo.

Rundles, who was part of the deal that sent Ugueth Urbina from the Expos to the Red Sox in 2001, is making his major league debut as a 27-year-old. He had a 2.91 ERA in 52 2/3 innings as a reliever for Buffalo. Lefties hit just .165 off him.

Cardinals signed LHP Rich Rundles, RHP Andy Cavazos, LHP Randy Leek and LHP Sam Walton to minor league contracts.

Rundles, who was rather well thought of when the Red Sox sent him to the Expos in the Ugueth Urbina trade in 2001, never developed as the Nationals hoped, going 6-13 with a 4.18 ERA for Double-A Harrisburg last season. Maybe the Cardinals will see if a switch to the pen would do anything for him. Cavazos and Leek are being re-signed. Leek, 28, won 15 games for Double-A Springfield last season.
